<x-flowed>During April, the topic of DOULOS, its translation and interpretation, was
an active thread.

Now, I see that the RBL web-site has posted:

Combes, I. A. H. The Metaphor of Slavery in the Writings of the Early
Church: From the New Testament to the Beginning of the Fifth Century

The reviewer writes:
  Combes approaches Christian appropriation
                of the language of slavery as a case study in
                religious metaphor. Problems arise when those
                who deploy religious metaphors confuse them
                with literal descriptions of the world: "The area
                in which this problem probably causes the most
                consternation today is that of the use of 'social
                relationship' terms in speaking of God" (p. 11).

The review is available on:
